More than 100 toys and gifts were given by customers at Access Self-Storage to go to individuals and families supported by the charity this Christmas, all of whom are living with life-limiting illnesses in Portsmouth and south east Hampshire.

Donations were left at Access Self Storage in Herbert Street, Southsea, over the past six weeks.

Access Self Storage Portsmouth store manager Phil Hall said: ‘We’re thrilled to have collected this many donations, a record for our store since we started this Christmas collection five years ago. There are some hugely generous items that have been given – Star Wars robots and stunt helicopter toys to name but a few.

‘Everyone who has donated should be hugely proud.’

More than 850 gifts have been collected so far across the country for charities nominated by Access Self Storage stores, beating last year’s collection.
